If you are selling any type of products and are looking for getting more customers then you cannot ignore the importance of online marketing and online community. So if you want to sell your products at high pace then having online presence for your products is really necessary. There are so many methods to implement your products in a successful manner with simple to purchase and easy e-commerce facility for users. If you are using WordPress website then you would be really happy to know that WordPress is offering a number of E-commerce plug-ins for merchants and online store owners.
I have picked-up some of the best ecommerce plug-ins from WordPress store. Check them out below:
Ecwid is one of the best WordPress ecommerce plug-ins which is totally free to use. This one is becoming a lot popular in merchants and online store owners. It has simple drag and drop facility. Also this plug-in has feature to be used with social profiles like Facebook & blogs etc. Also its added advantage over other plug-ins is its fast speed. Ecwid keeps on getting new updates on regular basis to add even more power to your website.
However, due to use of Ajax Ecwid is having some disadvantages from Search Engine Optimization perspective but that cannot over-ride the enormous benefits availed by the plug-in.
This plug-in is also a free plug-in to use without paying anything. This is having a very simple and user friendly admin panel which is extremely easy to operate. eShop provides a list of advanced features including option to list number of products on same page using add-to-cart form, Variety of shopping options, discount choices, availing product’s download sales information and a lot more to list. Also eShop is of highly customizable nature giving you great control over it.
The only limitation I found with eShop is the payment options as it avails payment using only 2 main methods with Paypal or Payson or third one is using eShop on its own for paying off. I hope this limitation will be avoided soon by upgrading these payment options by including some more popular option to pay.
